Tentacool -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Tentacool Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tentacool from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Tentacool is a Basic, Water type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Tentacool does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Sludge Shock, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 10 damage and makes your opponent's Active Pokemon unable to heal itself during your opponent's next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tentacool is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Tentacruel, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, this card could certainly be used as a starter type Pokemon, since it has a solid HP, low retreat cost, and can attack for only one Energy card.  I like the fact that Sludge Shock requires a Colorless Energy card, meaning it can be used in any type deck, however, since it just has the one move, it is limited, so I would not recommend using many of these in a deck without Tentacruel.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Tentacruel, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Guardians Rising set.  Like I mentioned above, this card is solid all around, with a good move, low retreat cost, and average HP.  The only thing holding this card back is that it is limited with only one move and only being able to do a maximum of 10 damage.
